The Scandalous Christ

by Alan Altany

One Yeshua of Yahweh,

a scandalous God

of suffered love,

full of sweat, sinew

and blood in obscure

Nazareth, no news

in the Jerusalem tabloids.

Breathing in sawdust

in the carpentry shop

while telling a joke

in Aramaic with a

Hebrew punch line.

Started walking the

hills and teaching

loving the enemies.

So Jewish a man

he enraged some

religious leaders;

slaughtered upright

naked then rises

from rigid death.

Who does that?
